Dear friend that tagged me in memes,

Dear friend that tagged me in memes,

I remember those days – the summer of ’17 specifically. We had just passed our fourth semester and man was it tough! 

Four months of struggle had finally come to an end and given my mental state, it was more than just exhausting. 

Two months at home was exactly what I needed at the time.

Wouldn’t it be better for everyone if line panned out exactly as we expected? What was supposed to be a fun two months turned out to be a very difficult phase of my life with nothing going right. Each day I woke not knowing what tune would life sing that day. But there was one thing that was constant. I had my mobile phone, a data pack, Facebook and YOU!

Day after day, you’d tag me in memes – about 8 to 10 each day. My face lit up every time the notification popped up. Reacting to your tags, replying to them gave me joy, gave me something to look forward to. Those memes gave me moments to smile. There were days when those were the only moments that I smiled.

This would seem like a small thing to you. Something which you do all day, every day. It was just another routine thing for you. But I want you to know that, this small gesture, this minuscule thing is what carried me through some of the toughest days of my life.

Thank You
